Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Home Basic Edition for PC

1 Answer

IE asks for password for ANY web page. Windows Vista. After deinstalling Norton 360 (factory install) IE asks for a user name and password to access each and every web page. (Google.com for example). Firefox and Opera work fine.

All Linksys routers have a built-in web-based setup page that allows the user to customize settings and set up advanced properties.

NOTE: Before accessing the router's web-based setup page, make sure the router is powered on and the computer is wired to one of the Ethernet ports on the router (1, 2, 3 or4 ).

Accessing the Router's Web-Based Setup Page

NOTE:To access the router's web-based setup page using Mac, click here.

Step 1:
Open a web browser such as Internet Explorer.

Step 2:
Go to the Address bar and enter your router's IP address ("192.168.1.1" is the default IP of most Linksys routers) then press [Enter].

NOTE : For WRP400, the default IP address would be "192.168.15.1" and if you place the router behind a primary router with the IP address of "192.168.15.1", then the router will automatically assume a new default IP address, "192.168.16.1".

3676-003.png

NOTE: If the IP address of the router has been changed, type the router's IP address in the Address bar instead.

The router's IP address can be changed by:


1. Running the router's setup CD.

2. Changing it on the router's web-based setup page.

If you forgot the router's IP address you can:



1. Check the router's IP address. For instructions, click here.

2. Press the Reset button at the back of the router for 30 seconds.


NOTE
: This procedure will reset your router to factory defaults. Any settings on the router will be erased. The router's IP address will be "192.168.1.1" and the password will be "admin".


Step 3:
A new window will prompt for a User name and Password. Leave the User name field blank then enter your router's password ("admin" is the default password), then click OK.

If you forgot the router's password you need to reset the router. For instructions, click here.

Windows 7

NOTE:
If the password of the router has been changed, type the router's new password in the Password field instead.

The router's password can be changed by:



i. Running the router's setup CD. Click here to learn how to download firmware.
ii. Changing it on the router's web-based setup page. Click here to learn how to change password on the web-based setup page.

Unable to Access the Router's Web-Based Setup Page
Reset your router for 30 seconds. Try accessing again using the default IP address "192.168.1.1". If you are encountering problems accessing the router's web-based setup page, click here.

Not able to go online


have you been online with this computer before?
or
Are you setting up for the first time?

Once you have an Internet Service Provider ,ISP,
you just need a modem and phone line access,
plug modem into phone socket and then into the computer,

My example modem is.........

Speed Touch 5x6v6 - Broadband Modem

log on to the modem using Internet Explorer Bar
Type 192.168.254
this will open the modems log on menu
then enter user name and password
its factory default is
user ADMIN
password ADMIN or 1234

once open there are some menu options on the main page

Speed Touch,
Broadband Connection,
Toolbox,
Home Network,

to add new user and password,
go to toolbox,
user management,
add new user
add password,(write down username and password)
change default user
save and test
should have a green tick next to new default user now

selecting broadband ... shows both your,
dsl connection and internet connection status,
with a green tick next to each heading.

Home network will show you...
all devices connected to this modems network ie
the other computers and printers etc,
connected on your network.
In network ,select your computer in the menu tree,
select configure
this give you a menu to add info about your computer
ie name info, comupters ip address,
access to the local intranet or the internet

Now lets connect to the internet

select Broadband from fornt page
menu will open and display
DSL & Internet Connections
here we test functionality.on? or off?

Now we go to your computer,
start my network connection
run wizard in my network places
select new connection
follow prompts to the end.

open internet explorer
if web page opens then we are done and finished,
open tools and internet options,
connections and then lan settings
select automatically detect
Apply then close
Test webpage again,
when ok shut down and restart,
to save the computers new settings ,
Test again with internet explorrer.

if no connections run wizard again,

Hope this Helps,Cheers Misterdj

HP Pavilion w. Vista, am trying to open Ubuntu for first time since install, but it wants a user name and password. Have tried all the combos from Windows, keep getting wrong password or name message. Also...


First of all, try this:
Username: root
Password: root

Second of all, you only specified that you had Vista. If you manually installed Ubuntu, then you must've specified a Username and Password during the setup.

If none work, then go ahead and format the Ubuntu partition, then re-install Ubuntu. This time, try to remember the Username and Password.

MSI System components


If it refers to an MSI System component then it is likely a windows installer problem.
Go to the Windows Installer 4.5 Redistributable download page.

If you are visiting the download page for the first time, near the top of the page you may see a "Validation Recommended" box. If you see this, click the "Continue" link and follow the prompts to get to the actual download page containing the "Files in this Download" section.
Download the Microsoft Windows Installer installation file depending on your version of Windows:

For Windows XP: Download the WindowsXP-KB942288-v3-x86.exe file.

For Windows Vista 64-bit: Download the Windows6.0-KB942288-v2-x64.msu file.


Save the file to the Windows desktop.

401 Authorization Error when accessing a Web-based Utility


Getting the 401 Authorization Required error page means that you tried to access a Setup page and entered an invalid password three (3) times. To reset the password, the device must be reset to factory default settings. Resetting the device: 1. Hold in the Reset button (usually located on the front or back panel) for 30 seconds. 2. Unplug the power cord to the device and wait for 1 minute. 3. Plug the power cord back into the device. 4. This will restore the device's default settings, which includes a default password of admin. 5. You can now try to access the Setup page again. Accessing the Setup Page: Open a Web Browser (either Internet Explorer or Netscape). Type the IP Address of the device into the Address Bar and press [Enter]. 1. The User Name and Password Prompt will appear. 2. Leave the User Name Field blank. 3. Type in the Router?s Password, admin, (the default Password). 4. Click OK or press the [Enter] key. If the device was reset to factory settings, the password of admin should be valid and the Setup page should load. If not, repeat steps to reset the device.
